    Actually I always tell folks about Baby Magic Baby Soft Scent lotion all the time. It mixes very well with alot of your oriental and spicy like frags. I wear mine with Angel, Coco Mademoiselle, Prada, Alien, and Aveda Patchouli. Palmers Cocoa Butter lotion is great to mix with some of your sweet smellin frags as well. The Baby Magic lotion lasts longer than most of the frags you will wear. Trust me. The Palmer's last a while too, but it tends to fade after a long period of time.

    Can't really help you with B&BW though. I haven't been in there for ages. I am curious about this Sandalwood Rose though. Sounds good. I do use VS's Love Spell with some of my sweet smellin frags like Lolita Lempicka, D&G Light Blue, Magnetism, and a few more.

    You can also go to an Aveda shop (located in most malls) to try out their singular note oils. I use them along with my frags too. I have Aveda Patchouli, Sandalwood, and Vanilla Absolute. They have alot of other singular notes as well. They are great and last a long time too. If you like a particular note in a frag and want to bring it out more, you can do that with these oils. I wear my patchouli with Alien, Coco Mademoiselle, Delicious Night DKNY, and many others. It's funny because it just makes these particular frags smell so good on me. I love the patchouli. I wear it by itself with the Baby Magic. It smells sooooo good.

    And modest, too. None of those traits mean anything when it comes to what kind of fragrances you might like... Besides the vanilla and amber clues, can you name some specific fragrances you like or don't like? Do you like spicy / woody / oriental / aquatic? Something loud or something close to the skin? What ARE your regular fragrances?

    Btw, answering to "Females" kinda sets my teeth on edge.

    Diva ...ouch! I can still recall the sting on the bag of my legs from my little 90 pound switch swiggin southern mamaw. The switch collected by me of course from the back yard ( I never did figure out how to choose one that did not sting lik a mother).

    As for the lotion the only two I use from The Body Shop are the Shea Butter Whip ( which I must have in the winter) and the Almond, which is not an overpowering almond smell but soft and natural...goes well with sweet and oriental frags. The Shea Butter is very clean smelling with very little sillage but makes my frags last during the dry skin season.

    thank you for that.....i dont have dry skin but i've always wanted to try using unscented lotion/creme to see how it would interact with the fragrances,

    You can always use a light lotion or a fragrant gel. Most of your fragranced lotions don't have enough in them to make you overly greasy, which is why I mix them with my day to day lotions. So, the scented lotions would be perfect for you cause you can wear them alone.

    Well thank you. I'll keep that in mind. Anybody that can cook collards like my Moms can be my honorary Moms any day!

    Yeah I can from a line of tough women too. It got on my nerves when I was younger, but I thank God for that strength every day now. Mama don't play!!!

    tdi I remember that all too well. Man, my Grandma would walk around with it and just whack you. You would tell her you didn't do anything and she would tell you she hit you for what you are about to do and what she might of missed earlier and because you just looked like you needed a good whack ROFL!! I miss her. She was a mess.

    divatologist, that is so funny, I think the Baby magic baby wash lasts a long time when used as a soap as well, and it reminds me of shalimar. I love the baby magic wash original...good memories.
    Always remember you are unique; just like everyone else.

    The Baby Magic comparison is interesting because the last time I visited my sis in law I used the babys liquid soap and it smelled a lot like Chanel No. 5 but I cant remember what type it was......there are soooooo many to choose from now.

    I personally think that BBW Juniper Breeze is something that both men and women can easily wear and can easily be complemented with most scents. I suggest you stay away from Cucumber Melon though - although it smells pretty clean, in my opinion..it's way too common and boring. Good luck on your search!!

    Exactly what i was going to say!

    I'm a guy here, but i'll give my 2 cents if I may:

    Your request is difficult to say the least, as most B&BW's scents are heavy on the sweet side, so stay away from Sensual Amber!

    There's another one you might find somewhat fun to layer with other stuff: Cool cirtus Basil, and yet another one: lemongrass sage.
    One that i like a lot is Coconut lime Vervena, which has a hint of Creed's VirginIW.

    You know what? I hate to say this, but I feel that I must.
    It is only a sense of humor and forgiveness that save everybody when a family is violent.
    I am sorry that anyone has to resort to hitting to maintain control.
    Love keeps everyone together, but it is a distortion of reality to think of the punishment and the fear it caused to be funny in retrospect.
    Yes, violence it is a part of life.
    Yes, it is "natural" for humans and animals to be violent in order to establish dominance.
    No, it is not the best way.
    I'm glad we can all laugh, but please let me put in this disclaimer.
    Don't be offended.
    I understand that some of the world's greatest humor arises from surviving pain or danger and putting it into a context that makes one laugh.
    I am the same as everyone else here. I laughed at these stories, too. But I want everyone to think about why he or she is laughing. There is tragedy behind the scenes. And there is a better way. No need to emulate "good old granny."
    Please allow me to put this subject into perspective.
    Thank you.

    I grew up in the era where parents ( and grandparents) spanked their children and I have had my share. My DH went to Catholic school and pretty much received a spanking daily for misbehavior( think extremely high IQ and being bored in school). This is why I agree with you 100% Purplebird and why I have never spanked my children. And guess what ? They have way more respect and reverence for me than I ever had for my Parents. I shudder when my friend talks about spanking her young children and I chime in with my 2 cents on corporal punishment. I choose to have a sense of humour about the spankings I received because I remember each and everyone of them vividly ( there were not that many ). I don't need "therapy" because of the handful of times I got my rear spanked. I have chosen to move on and use it as another experience that I think has made me a better parent.

    My first pic - for male fougere, green aromatic, or aquatics, is BBW Green Clover & Aloe (I think that's what it's called). It's just a nice green, fresh scent.
    I dated a guy that wore Very Sexy for Men 2, and I think BBW Juniper or Cotton Blossom would layer well with it - or any fragrance in the same vein as VSM2.

    If you are still searching for a B&BW lotion I would say to try "Japanese Cherry Blossom", An oriental floral that to me could be unisex and it smells very good, also "Dancing Waters" is a simple aquatic scent that might blend well with cologne, or if you are looking for a cream from B&BW that is fragrance free theres "True Blue Spa" body cream. Hope this helps and good luck finding what you are looking for...

    B&BW have 4 men's body sprays/shower gels that you may want to try. My husband likes the "Woodland" one (the shower gel more than the spray, however.)

    Here is the page that shows them:
